  • Hi everyone!

    I am complete new to Construct and I have to say that this is an awsome tool!! I am totally in love already. I am using this now for a couple of days and created a small level with some nice sidescrolling. just to get used to construct. This won't be a finished game but it is something like a playground for me

    One question I have at the beginning. I am sure this is somehow possible. Is an object able to read and wirte global variables? If yes, how?

    Note: I am totally not a programmer. But this Program is really awsome and easy to use!!! Love it!

    So here is a small Video I made.

    Greetings from germany.

    The System command takes care of the global variables... though you can make the appearance that an object has control of them (because global variables are, I believe, meant to have all-around access instead of being limited to one object).

    You can also assign invidual variables to objects if you really want to.

    But if you're talking about reading/writing to an external file... I haven't tried that.

  • Ok. Thanks for you answer.

    One example. I have a global Variable. For example Time. How can I show this Variable with a textobject. I don't know how to say the system write this text into your textobject. Or tell textobject take the Value from the GLOBAL Variable.

  • Try Construct 3

    Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

    Try Now Construct 3 users don't see these ads
  • You don't have to shift a global variable over to an object variable... I believe. Because objects already have access to them.

    Try this small piece of code either way: global('name')

    But replace the word name with the name of your global variable.

    This returns the global variable value.

    Of course, I could have misunderstood.
